Negative Reviews


Minor issues with the breakfast may occur

Some guests appreciated the free breakfast. There are also some guests, however, who complained of issues such as the lack of eggs being served, and the lack of space in the area relative to the number of rooms the hotel has. These issues though, are minor, and there are many alternative dining establishments just a few steps away.


Water heating may take a while

Each room is equipped with a private bathroom with hot shower. However, some guests complained of the slow water heating time, which can reach up to 15 minutes.


No on-site laundry facilities

Guests are discouraged with the lack of on-site laundry facilities. This issue was particularly inconvenient for those who were planning to stay for a long time. The management refers the guests to a nearby establishment, though, for their laundry needs.
